Color Combo Blog Hop - March 2020

Products listed in bold are available in My Online Store, please see the bottom of the post for a complete list of Product Purchase Links under the Blog Roll. This month's Color Combo: Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, and Crushed Curry.
 DISCLAIMER: this is an International blog hop...I am in the United States, and I can only do business with those in my country, or those who have an APO/FPO address for shipping. So sorry for any inconvenience!

For my project this month, I've created a card you could use for a wedding or commitment ceremony. I used some images from the Dressed to Impress stamp set, and the saying comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. I really didn't like the Crushed Curry Cardstock layer, so I used a Sponge Dauber to add some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint around the edges and it made it look like GOLD! I also colored some Basic Rhinestones with a Light Mango Melody Stampin' Blends Marker, to keep the gold theme going.

This greeting fit so nicely in one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, and the scalloped rectangle comes from that same set of dies, so that was super convenient! The greeting is stamped with the Melon Mambo Ink Pad, and if you look closely, you'll see some watercolor-y swashes over the greeting. The swash comes from the Dressed to Impress stamp set, and I stamped it twice (to cover the whole saying) with the Blushing Bride Ink Pad.

The flowers are stamped on the top layer of Blusing Bride Cardstock, using the Blushing Bride Ink Pad for the ones on the background, and the Melon Mambo Ink Pad for the ones on top of that. Then I decided to stamp one of the Melon Mambo flowers on a scrap piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock, and trim it out using my Paper Snips. The All Dressed Up Dies will cut out those flowers for you, but I was just being lazy...didn't want to get up to go across the room!

I grabbed a Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker to dot in the centers of the Melon Mambo stamped flowers, and then I used a dry Aqua Painter to get a little bit of that Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint on it to dab over the top of those little dots. You'll wanna grab a roll of that really pretty Petal Pink 1/4" Metallic Edge Ribbon to finish off this card. I know it's not technically "Blushing Bride", but look at it - I think it coordinates beautifully.
